graduate2Heading off to college is an exciting time for both new and returning students. Many are leaving home for the first time, gaining new independence and discovering new opportunities. Others are fine tuning their dreams and aspirations.

To parents campus life might seem as simple as football Saturdays and late nights at the library. However for many students tackling that dreaded course, dealing with roomates, or balancing increased financial pressures can be too much to handle. As if dealing with these responsibilities weren't enough... students today face even far more serious issues such as:

  • Underage and excessive drinking
  • Substance abuse
  • Tobacco use
  • Risky sexual behavior
  • Safety and security

Students often feel pressured to do things for peer acceptance that they later regret. While some college students are able to cope with these feelings and situations, an increasing number find these experiences stressful. According to a 2008 Center for Student Health and Life survey more than 25 percent of college students say they are "poor" or "very poor" in managing this stress which may lead to mental health issues.

The Campus Assistance Program (CAP) is designed to work with school counseling programs to give students unparalleled access to high-quality counseling services. For these students, help is just a phone call or mouse-click away, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. They also have access to face-to-face counseling sessions anywhere in the country. In addition, they can receive financial and legal consultation if they so desire. This fully comprehensive program provides services for every student, to help them make the most of their college years.
